As A Student Renting From Student Housing The Hague, Why Am I Required To Provide A Guarantor Within The EU?

Thank you for your question regarding the requirement to provide a guarantor within the EU when renting from Student Housing the Hague. We understand that this requirement may raise some queries, and we are here to provide you with a detailed explanation.

As part of our rental agreement, we request that tenants provide a guarantor who is based within the European Union. This measure serves to ensure accountability and mitigate potential risks for both parties involved in the rental arrangement. It is not allowed to point yourself as a guarantor. You can read more about it here.

Here are a few key points to elaborate on why we have implemented the requirement of having an EU guarantor:

1. Financial Responsibility: The presence of a guarantor helps to secure the financial aspect of the rental agreement. By having a guarantor within the EU, we can ensure that there is an individual who can assume responsibility for the rental payments in the event that the tenant is unable to fulfill their obligations.

2. Legal and Administrative Compliance: Renting a property involves various legal and administrative aspects. Having a guarantor within the EU facilitates adherence to local laws and regulations governing rental contracts. It provides an added layer of assurance that the necessary documentation and procedures can be carried out effectively.

3. Risk Mitigation: Renting accommodations involves an element of risk for both the tenant and the landlord. The presence of a guarantor within the EU helps mitigate these risks by providing an additional financial support system. In case of unforeseen circumstances or potential damages to the property, the guarantor can step in to fulfill any financial obligations that may arise.

4. International Student Considerations: As an organization focused on serving international students, having a guarantor within the EU is particularly beneficial. It helps bridge potential gaps that may arise due to the unique circumstances and limited social safety nets that international students often face. The presence of a guarantor provides an added sense of security and helps ensure a smooth rental experience.

Please note that the role of a guarantor is primarily to provide financial security and is not intended to interfere with the tenant's independence or decision-making. The guarantor's involvement is typically limited to financial matters and does not extend to day-to-day interactions between the tenant and the landlord.

We understand that finding a guarantor within the EU may pose challenges for some individuals. If you encounter difficulties in meeting this requirement, we encourage you to reach out to our team. We will be more than happy to explore alternative solutions or discuss any concerns you may have.

We hope this clarifies the reasons behind our requirement for a guarantor within the EU. If you have any further questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are here to assist you throughout the rental process.
